The Engineering With Nature Podcast Season 3
October 6, 2021
Season 3 of the Engineering With Nature® Podcast launches October 6. This season, our focus is on creating the future with EWN. As Todd Bridges, Lead, Engineering With Nature, United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) says, “the idea of nature-based solutions has a history that goes back many decades, but it's gained focus, credibility and energy in the last 10 years or so. It is emerging and growing and dynamic. It's exciting to be a part of that."
